Treasure Island Shawl

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Treasure Island Shawl Link to website or photo www.craftsy.com/pattern/knitting/Accessory/Treasure-Island-Shawl/1071 What are you most proud of? This was my first pattern that included a lace edging. I learned the technique from Laura Nelkin's fabulous Mastering Lace Shawls class right here on Craftsy! What advice would you give someone starting this project? This pattern is a good introduction to lace knitting and/or beaded knitting. The beads are optional, so if both techniques are new to you, you may choose to omit the beads and concentrate on the lace.
